County Line: Pleasant View holds old-fashioned homecoming

By Shirley Thorne

County Line Correspondent

County Liners welcomed autumn days this past Tuesday.  The cooler sunny days have been a delight to those of us who enjoy working in our yards and gardens and other outside activities.  Although some local churches have canceled homecomings due to the coronavarius, we do have the upcoming one at Piney Gove AME Zion Church on Sunday, Oct. 11.

As photos show,  folks had an old-fashioned homecoming at Pleasant View Baptist Church Sunday.  Everyone enjoyed special music by Jordan and James Estes.

Churches have these service schedules this week, but contact the church for any updates weather may require:  Calvary Baptist, outdoor Sunday worship at 11 a.m.; Clarksbury Methodist, outdoor Sunday worship at 10 a.m. and special “Book of John” Bible study at 7 p.m. Thursday; Piney Grove AME Zion, outdoor Sunday worship at 10 a.m.; Pleasant View Baptist, regular indoor services Sunday and Wednesday; Salem Methodist, outdoor Sunday worship at 9:30 a.m. under the shelter; Society Baptist, indoor Sunday worship at 11 a.m. in the fellowship hall with Gene Tutterow as special speaker; no Wednesday night service.      

Services for local churches will continue online .

Our community sends get-well wishes to Michael Barry Wilson, who has been hospitalized at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center, where he had surgery.  Frances Hilling has improved but remains in rehab at Iredell Memorial Hospital.  Faye Stroud continues to rest at home while under treatment for cancer.

Join us in prayer for the Lord’s divine healing and blessings upon Barry, Frances, Faye, and other residents who are having health problems.  Remember in prayer Oscar and Sara Koontz and family; his brother-in-law Raymond “Ray” McGarity died Thursday of last week.  A service celebrating the lives of Ray and his wife Frances, who died September 1 and was a sister of Oscar, was held last Monday in the Rowan Memorial Park Mausoleum in Franklin.

Word has been received of the death of James “Jim” Barker of County Line Road. Remember his family in prayer.  Eaton Funeral Service of Mocksville is serving the family.

Continue to remember in prayer the many families affected by the widespread fires in the western states of our country.   Also, pray for the many families affected by the coronavirus.
